Join the Friends of the Rum River in cleaning up stretches of the Rum River. On Saturday, Sept. 8, volunteers are invited to meet at 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Milaca Riverview Park where volunteers will put in to traverse 6.2 miles downstream, taking out at Bogus Brook Town Hall. You should be done by 2:30 p.m. (unless you bring a fishing pole).
Participants will be assigned a one-to-two mile section of the river to pick up, then are free to paddle at leisure to the take-out. Water and snacks will be provided – but do pack a lunch. Children aged 12 and under should be accompanied by an adult.
RSVP if possible. For details, or to reserve a watercraft or find a canoe partner, contact Wally at 763-689-9619, Ralph at 763-689-0812, or Kriste at RumRiverNews@yahoo.com.
